Conine Group Inc. (CO9 Group) is a family owned independent real estate brokerage firm located in Columbia near the "crossroads" of South Carolina. We (the CO9s) have been in the real estate business for more than 33 years. Stan Conine left his position in South Carolina State Government in 1984 and began selling real estate with the then largest firm in Columbia. Adrienne Conine joined him in real estate in 1990. The corporation was formed in 1998 although the CO9s continued to work under the auspices of other brokerages and franchises. Dusty Conine joined the family real estate group in 2004. During the 30 years from 1984 to 2014, CO9 Group consisted of family only along with various numbers of ancillary staff and in-house subcontractors. In 2015 Conine Group Inc. began operations as a totally independent real estate brokerage firm with no affiliations with other brokerages or franchises. At the time additional agents began to be added. Our most experienced agent, Laura Kemp, has 36 years experience! CO9 Group currently has a total of 6 agents and brokers with various areas of specialty and responsibility.
Literally hundreds and hundreds of transaction sides have closed over 33+ years with the Conine name appearing as the listing agent, selling agent, or brokerage firm. The group has formed long lasting relationships with individual buyers and sellers as well as long term formal relationships with corporate sellers including Fannie Mae, Wells Fargo, MGIC and others. Our agents have been recognized numerous times as top producers, with all three founding members having achieved the designation of Life Members of the Circle of Excellence by the Greater Columbia Association of Realtors.
More important than all the accomplishments and qualifications is simply the way the CO9 Group treats people. Our motto for years has been "Building lifelong friendships through real estate" and we like to think that we do this by treating all people fairly and with respect. We go out of our way to carefully evaluate the level of experience of each of our clients so that we don't make the uninformed feel insecure or the well-informed feel insulted. We recognize that home buying is a very important and sobering experience--yet fun at the same time. We try to keep it in proper perspective and guide our clients along the journey at the pace comforable to them.
